[SOLVED] Pygtk installation


I need to install pybliographic from source on my Ubuntu 18.04 system.
make install is hanging on a dependency:
snip ===========
checking for python version… 2.7
checking for python platform… linux2
checking for python script directory… ${prefix}/lib/python2.7/dist-packages
checking for python extension module directory… ${exec_prefix}/lib/python2.7/dist-packages
checking for pkg-config… /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0… yes
checking for PYGTK… no
configure: error: Package requirements (pygtk-2.0 >= 2.24.0) were not met:
No package ‘pygtk-2.0’ found
end snip ===========

The simple minded solution does not find the package:
smcc@jaguar:~/data/static_data/tarballs/pybliographer/pybliographer-1.4.0$ sudo apt install pygtk
[sudo] password for smcc:
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
E: Unable to locate package pygtk

Anyone know how to install pygtk?

sudo apt install python-gtk2 python-gtk2-dev


Thanks! That got me past that hurdle.


You should mark this reply as the solution, so it is clear the thread is solved.


Maybe you should choose my reply, because it doesn’t show the command in the solution part of your post, if not expanded.


I manually changed that :smile:


Sorry – first time doing this.


No worries. At least you tried and that counts :+1:


No problem, it’s kind of hard to see how it works, anyway.
